I wuldnt think NVidia could name thier card a 9800GTS?
I think they only go up in the series, when they completely change the card's architecture or something. Like the transition from the 7 series to the 8 series, with the stream processors, instead of pixel pipelines...and support for DX10. The 89xx series, is just on the new 80nm process, and with GDDR4...with faster clocks, as well.

ive read a few articles about the 8950GX2, just like the 7950GX2 with two boards.


i guess i will have some decisions to make for the next build this coming summer.....ATi or Nvidia.....



also, for crossfire, do the cards need to be the same exact card and manufacturer, like SLi setups, or could I go with an X2800txt now and slam in an X2850XTX when they come out?
